Countdown to Spoonievision Live

In our world, this is going to be as big as the Super Bowl! Spoonievision Live is the first ever chance to see behind the scenes of the Saving the Spoon-billed Sandpiper conservation breeding programme.



Spoonievision Live will be presented by Kate Humble

Going out in two days time, Spoonievision Live will be hosted by long time supporter of the project, TV presenter Kate Humble.

Kate will introduce us to the stars of the show: the captive spoonies from the Slimbridge breeding programme. As well as bringing us the latest footage from this summer’s expedition to Chukotka. On the sofa she’ll be chatting with the experts who work on the front line of spoon-billed sandpiper conservation.

So, it’s the start of an exciting week. Just two days left to prepare and then it’s Lights, Camera, Action!

If you haven’t already, please sign up for updates at www.wwt.org.uk/spoonievision and that address is the one you need to return to at 8pm (UTC +1:00) on Wednesday to catch the broadcast. You can also follow #spoonievision on Twitter to join in the conversation. See you there!
